This week Wool & Co. is kicking off our 6 month support of the Knitted Knockers Organization (knittedknockers.org). Knitted Knockers are soft, hand knit or crocheted breast prosthesis for women who have had mastectomies or other breast procedures and are an excellent alternative to often heavy and uncomfortable conventional prosthesis. The Knockers are filled & then distributed free of charge through this wonderful organization.
Please join us as we host a variety of ways that you may participate. We will be using Cascade Ultra Pima (DK) for our Knitted Knockers, as well as the approved patterns. There are patterns available for knitting them on double point needles, magic loop as well as crochet patterns. Knockers are needed in all sizes and colors so have fun making the Knockers of your choice. By far the most requested are neutral colors though and matching pairs are greatly needed. Each skein of Ultra Pima is enough for at least 1 pair. The pattern calls for size US 5 needles (or size to achieve gauge).
